The bold design was inspired by the outfit worn by Michael Urie at the MET gala, and Ellerbeck pulled it off flawlessly.

The journey to making the outfit was kept a secret from peers until it was complete, and even then, it was a struggle to find a willing designer.

Ellerbeck absolutely stole the show at his matric dance and said: “Love yourself for who you are because at the end of the day, you’re gonna have friends, you’re gonna have lovers, but you got you for the rest of your life. So, embrace that.”.
